Trudeau states aborting a baby due to gender is a Charter right

trudeau abortion

Trudeau’s political career has just crashed and burned after repeatedly answering Sun News’ Marissa Semkiw’s questions about sex-selection abortions as a Charter protected right:

MARISSA SEMKIW: A woman comes to you. She says she’s pregnant with a girl and she wants to terminate the life of the child because it’s a girl. What would you say to her?

JUSTIN TRUDEAU: My position has been very clear. The Liberal Party is the party standing up for people’s rights. And the Liberal Party will always be the party of the Charter. So we will continue to stand up for people’s rights and not legislate them away.

MARISSA SEMKIW: So to be clear, you wouldn’t discourage her from having an abortion because it’s a girl?

JUSTIN TRUDEAU: My role as the leader of the Liberal Party is to make sure that Canadian legislation respects peoples rights and that’s what I will continue to do.

MARISSA SEMKIW: Yesterday you said you were happy with the status quo on abortion. But right now the status quo is that it’s perfectly fine to abort a child because it’s a girl. Do you have no qualms with that?

JUSTIN TRUDEAU: I will leave discussions like that between a woman and the health professionals that she encounters. I don’t think the government should be in the business of legislating away people’s rights. And that’s why the Liberal Party is steadfast in this position. (see here)

The Liberals will never form government with Trudeau as leader now.

    Trudeau is not Prime Ministerial material. Trudeau is a total embarrassment, beyond anything we’ve seen in any leader we’ve had who aspired to or was being considered for the top political post in the country. In fact the man is simply not too bright, far, far out of his depth.

  2. Dave Says:

    I don’t know about that. There are a lot of stupid people in this country who like Trudeau.
    Go figure.

  3. Martin Says:

    The more Jr discusses the topic, the more thoroughly muddled his thinking becomes. He was brought to task last week by the editorial board of National Post, for claiming The SC decision gave women unrestricted abortion rights based on the Charter. This claim is even more extreme and something the court never came close to stating, but simply something he has read in. Perhaps his handlers now wish they had never prodded him to bring abortion up in the first place.
    Once again, as Jr freelances his answers become increasingly bizarre.

  4. Alain Says:

    Trudeau actually demonstrates an extremely bit of logic here. If you accept that abortion is a charter right (which I do not), and you are pro-abortion, you cannot then claim that it is wrong when done based on the sex of the baby. This is a big problem for the pro-aborts, especially the professional feminists.

  5. Alain Says:

    Gee, meant to write “an extremely rare bit of logic”.

  6. John W Says:

    I am anti abortion and but believe an abortion is up to the woman – who is the sovereign of her womb – not the State. Trudeau is a cold pro-abortion ideologue, but he is consistent and true to his school here.
    While most Canadians undoubtedly oppose abortion generally, and intensely when it comes to things like late term and sex selection abortions, most also prefer to leave the government out of it.
    Trudeau is on solid ground philosophically and politically: Canadians will not suddenly rise up against abortion to stop sex select terminations, and certainly not to engage the Liberal leader on his muddled and politically irrelevant Charter blather.
    The ugliness of sex select abortions is one of the prices any free society pays for not criminalizing abortion. Sex select abortion is no uglier than ANY abortion. Conservatives need to get their act together on this question: you can’t be sort of against abortion. If you oppose abortion, you oppose it all the time for every reason. This is a position C/conservatives don’t have the balls to take and it is part of the reason why abortion culture continues to grow in Canada.
    That said, any War on Abortion will be as successful as any other war government declares on things it does not approve of. If C/conservatives want to stop abortion, start by changing the culture instead of running to Big Brother all the time.
    Trudeau is a lightweight but get used to him as PM.

    that is quite a document we have there. trudeau senior’s operating manual. killing unborn children is not something any country should have in it’s constitution. I would like to read the line that says it is ok.

  8. Beachdude Says:

    I think when the Montreal and Toronto elites thought this topic was a good idea they did not expect this kind of backlash….now the golden boy is in complete damage control, quite funny from where I sit I must admit as it was 100% all him

    • Martin Says:

      And not for the first time. He badly needs rescuing from his self inflicted blather, I’m sure help is on the way from the usual sources.

  9. Roy Elsworth Says:

    well at least were discussing abortion and not from the conservatives from the liberals now since they started it. maybe all the conservatives should say hidden agenda hidden agenda.

  10. Liz J Says:

    Has Trudeau pointed out the Charter dictate that states gender abortion is a right? Is he saying the unborn have rights as well? This nonsense from Trudeau might be a good reason to delve into and gut the Charter, it’s nothing but a tool for the unelected Judges to mess with our democratic rights, making some more equal than others. The Trudeau Charter is beyond a flawed document, it’s a step towards Socialism which is what Trudeau was enamoured with and has passed it on to his heirs.

    On the late not so great Pierre Trudeau, I met a man at a Rotary function who told me very proudly “He had worked for Trudeau”
    When i offered my sincerest sympathy, the look on his face was beyond price.
    I was at Cornwallis in 1967 when P Trudeau’s flunky Paul Hellyer gutted the Navy.
    Those Men were the ones that had beat the German U-Boats on the North Atlantic.
    They were no longer the Navy, they were now “Costal Command”
    Real men who deserved better, I will never forget, or forgive the Liberals.
    But then P Trudeau rode around Montreal on his little Motorcycle wearing a German helmet.
    Far better men than that trust fund fop went and did the heavy lifting while he dashed about spending his trust fund on nifty cars and movie stars, shallow, arrogant mental midget.
    Should never have been allowed to pass on his defective genes IMO
    “The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.”
    William Shakespear
    Justin resurrects his fathers moldering corpse at every turn, it is 1967 all over again.
    Platform shoes are in ……ad nauseam
    Perhaps it is time to perform a “procedure” on the Charter of Wrongs a civilized country does not slaughter the innocent based on their gender or convenience or condone barbaric acts, “root causes” be damned
    Justin has established a pattern, he opens his mouth reveals what he is thinking and spends the next three weeks either hiding or trying to explain his brain-fart du jour.
    Just. My. Opinion.

  12. Message to Trudeau: Abortion is NOT a Charter or Contitutional RIGHT! | Crux of the Matter Says:

    […] example, as BC Blue is reporting, Sun News reporter Marissa Semkiw recently asked Trudeau: “A woman comes to you. She says […]

  13. Martin Says:

    I spoke too soon about help from Jr’s handlers is on the way. See this from latest Sun story::

    “”In a Friday statement Trudeau’s spokeswoman objected to Sun News Network’s coverage.

    “Trudeau and the Liberal Party does not condone sex selective abortion,” wrote Kate Purchase in an email.””

    Except the story quotes Jr as saying something very close to exactly that. See for yoursellf here:

      More proof Trudeau is not the leader, he’s a front man for what’s left of the Liberal party of Canada. People need to be aware of this when they consider supporting them, they have no idea who will be running the affairs of state should they vote for them with a front man who can’t think for himself, he just isn’t up to the job.

    • dance...dancetotheradio Says:

      What weasel words these are.
      Trying to have it both ways.
      It’s the Liberal way.

  14. Bubba Brown Says:

    But, but, but, he didn’t really mean it./say it /it was a joke/ hey!, out of context.
    Junior Trudeau the but, but, but, Leader

  15. bruce Says:

    I agree Dean that this would be groundshaking but it will only get mentioned when his friends in the media (read: chief apologists) have figured out how to present this with the edge taken off, if at that.

  16. Liz J Says:

    Can anyone recall another leader aspiring to lead the country showing so much vacuity on so many issues? If any Conservative leader presented as being so dense, so lacking in knowledge on so many issues, they’d be skewered in the media relentlessly. Trudeau cannot ever become PM, anyone concerned for their country or having pride in their country couldn’t vote for a puppet managed by faceless puppeteers.

    Trudeau may have been a drama teacher but he hasn’t got the capacity to remember his lines, ask him a question and he gets all fuddled duddled up, gets that vacant stare some people might call starry eyed but it’s massive confusion due to lack of knowledge. It’s a scary situation to think about what might happen if the media party continue to stand by their “man”.

    • bubbabrown Says:

      Indeed Liz J that long 10 seconds when Jr is trying to figure out which foot to stick in his mouth.

      • Liz J Says:

        If the Pony were Conservative the media would be riding him on his stand on Marijuana as well as Abortion in pile on fashion which they like to do to Conservatives. We all know how tiresome they became with the robocall farce, which was totally false even though a “journalist” for a Liberal rag got an award for his coverage of the fiction. No Conservative would get away without constant hammering on controversial issues the Media Party think they can corner them on, make a big issue of, to damage their base of support.

    • Martin Says:

      I read one of the books claiming Sarah Palin was impossible to bring up to speed, remember her lines and stay on track. The media had a field day with her, how unthinkable it was for her to be running for high office. But, compared to Jr, she had certain concrete achievements and was a self-made woman. With all his advantages of private, quality schooling shouldn’t Canadians expect more from him? He has been on the job for over a year and with all the mentoring and training frankly doesn’t appear to be improving. If people really listened to him and realized what you see, is what you will get, surely no one could vote for him as PM.
